Subject: Scary but true
Sri Lanka has these amazing pockets of people who found their little niche thing to do.

The conditions under which this blacksmith works is freaking crazy.
What if there were kids on the street?
What if the red hot rod slipped off the precipitous resting spot on the brick?
What if one of the bricks broke under his blows?
What is it with his handling hot iron without gloves?

You cannot but love that little island.
